Is My Yahoo! not Firefox friendly?

My Yahoo!, a personal Internet portal page, is my electronic newspaper. I scan through it daily with Firefox, my browser of choice. However, more and more often, I would open up a news link in a new tab and get a "404 - Document Not Found" message.

For example, today, I was interested in an article called "Eye On Stocks For Friday, Aug. 5" by Forbes. Here is th link provided by My Yahoo! when you copy the link or open it in a new tab: link. It gets you to a 404 doc not found page.

I was baffled by this trait for a long time, until I click the link without copying it or opening it in a new tab. If you just click the link, you will actually get to the "Eye On Stocks For Friday, Aug. 5 article. Strange, but it works.

Is there a bug in Firefox? Or is My Yahoo! just not playing nice with Firefox?
